Expedition Overview

  • Join experts from National Geographic and The Wall Street Journal to explore revitalized neighborhoods in Bogotá and Medellín, and hear from local guides on how these communities are slowly emerging from their crime-ridden pasts.
  • Tour a sustainable cacao farm to learn how the crop came to symbolize the country’s battle with cocaine production—and is offering a way forward for local farmers.
  • Meet with indigenous groups in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains to glimpse age-old traditions and hear about mining projects threatening their ancestral lands.
  • Immerse yourself in vallenato—the iconic, accordion-led music of Colombia—on a visit to the Casa Beto Murgas Accordion Museum in Valledupar.
